Candle Making

“She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night,” —Proverbs 31:18. People have used different types of light for thousands of years to both brighten and lengthen their days. Oil lamps, lanterns, and candles were somewhat of a necessity if one wanted to do any work after dark, or even to enjoy another’s fellowship, or to read a book. Today, with the convenience of electricity, candles are used more for decorative accents, to set a cozy mood, or to provide a sweet smelling scent to freshen a room.

Candles are fun and easy to make with the proper tools. With the many shapes, sizes, colors, and scents available, there is no limit to the candle designs that can be created. Candles are still useful in an emergency or when “roughing it.” Also, candle making is a delightful skill by which one may create special candles for home or gifts.
